For a number of years, Meghan McCain had a high-profile gig on The View. The problem for McCain, though, was that she would have to argue her talking points. So now, the Conservative pundit writes for The Daily Mail, writing op-eds where she can’t be challenged.
In her most recent column, McCain tackled ‘wokeness.’ In current Conservative parlance, being woke means that you acknowledge social or racial inequality. McCain writes that the reason Yellowstone is a big hit because the show isn’t woke.
The pundit wrote:
“And those who work in the mainstream media ignore everything that challenges their perceptions. It’s one reason so many people expressed shock at the victory of Donald Trump in 2016, or more recently, at the outcome of the Kyle Rittenhouse case in Wisconsin.
They just never paid attention to the other side of what their cohort of friends, media outlets, and lefty celebrities were saying — so they were taken by surprise. While left-wing political dominance is a problem across the media, nowhere is it more pronounced than in Hollywood. While there are actors and creators with right-of-center views, they have to hide their beliefs or risk the end of their careers. Even the slightest wavering from the marching orders of the woke left is likely to result in a huge penalty.”
Notably, only one major character in the show (Denim Richards’ Colby) is Black.
